19th July 2013: Finished Jacket. Very pleased with how this turned out. It's fits like a dream! I didn't end up adding the lining on the inside as it would be very hot for me to wear, especially in this current heatwave we are having.

17th July 2013: Making the hood. I used a pattern for this piece. It was two quarter circles then one rectangle. I also cut the same shapes in some black lining. I then sewed both the outer hood and lining together. I then sewed on a white fur trim to the outside and sewed the hood to the coat.

16th July 2013: Close up of sleeves and details. These are all the pieces I made for the sleeves. She has a lot of loops and belts on the sleeves of her coat. I also made some hoops for the pocket's on the front of the coat too. I had to hand sew all these on as they were too small to get through the machine. I also sewed the belt's the the hoops so they don't move around when I'm wearing it.

15th July 2013: Almost there... The coat finally looks ok and everything is falling into place. I need to do the following for it to be complete.

-Line the coat.
-Add the hoop detail to arm.
-Add the black cuff to arm.
-Add and alter all the black belts.
-Add the back belt hoops.
-Add both pockets.
-Add the tops of the pockets.
-Add the black detail to pocket.
-Alter hood.
-Line hood.
-Add white trim to hood.
-Fix boot.

7th July 2013: Showing the alterations of the coat. As you can see from the pictures the coat did not fit well at all at the back. After I took it all apart, adjusted the pieces and sewed it back together the lines looked a lot neater and fit me well. I also started to add the hoops for the belt to loop through. I had to keep using the webcam to make sure the back of these hoops weren't wonky.

1st July 2013: Alterations and take-ins. The coat was originally quite rushed and didn't fit the way I wanted to I undid all the pieces and sewed them back together. The fit now is a lot better and more true to the shape of Sherry's coat. It's so comfy too. I sewed on one of the cuffs on the end of the sleeve, it's like an elastic material. I also started to make the pockets. They're just squares that are taken in on the back.

23rd April 2013: Progress so far. Well I unfortuently didn't get this done for Gemucon like I said. Still i's very close to finishing so I want to get it done.

-Need to buy brown gloves.
-Alter the collar of the coat.
-Line the inside of the coat.
-Sew zip to coat.
-Alter sleeves.
-Add black cuffs to end of sleeves.
-Add fur trim to coat.
-Make belt hoops for center of coat.
-Make belt hoops for arms of coat.
-Make and add the small, black belt detail.
-Find a a gun prop.
-Fix up boots.

15th April 2013: Wig/Make-up/Scarf test I wore Sherry at Gemucon to give her a test run. It was her version without the coat (the only thing that isn't done) and thought I'd post some pictures. I unfortuently didn't get a full shot so here's just face shots.

15th February 2013: Pattern pieces sewn together. All the pattern pieces I cut are now sewn together. I left the length quite long at first so I could cut it to the length that was best. Better to have it too long than too short. I then used a simple sleeve pattern I have and used it to create the sleeves. Again I made them too long as my arms are rather long.

7th February 2013: The beginning of the coat. I used a coat pattern originally but ended up cutting it up so the stitching matched the same on Sherry's coat. This is the front of the coat all pinned up before I sewed it together. The same pattern was used on the back but without the zip there.

10th January 2013: Wig test (no make-up) I luckily had a wig from a previous cosplay that, with some work, will be perfect for her. Sorry for the no make-up! Still a long way to go yet...
